    Yes, based on trade show images of the Chevy Volt concept car that was used for Jolt:

    You can also see a small intake in the middle which is also present on the SS figure, I painted this dark silver.

    There are also indents on the car rear meant to represent those red lights, I haven't painted them yet but am leaning towards yes, I believe @Jhund did. I'm not sure if I should paint the license plate area or not.

    Still haven't decided if I'm going to make the roof solid black.

    I also recommend if possible taking a panel liner to the lower part of the grille, because on the toy everything is painted straight silver and the lower grille actually has more detail:

    Yea, I thought abt swapping the hands as well, but that was an obvious no go lol. I fig'd the easiest way would be to cut and rotate the whips.

    Thanks for the info! I'll paint the back now. I did the license plate in white which is what I usually do for all SS figures. Maybe I'll try and add some numbers at some point. Usually I do NCC-1701 :D 
    Dude that's probably a child's medium... Good luck :lol 

    Oh and Happy Birthday @Sayan Rahman my dude!!!!

    XD Yes! But what's weird is that the measurements didn't seem so bad on the description. So I put in an offer and if I don't fit into it...well I have a new fabric poster. Haha

    I'm 5 feet tall and 100 lbs, so I'm banking on sucking in my gut and hoping for the best! XD

    Alright, I think I'm calling it a day on Jolt touch ups! Now all that's left to do is @Shmoptimus Prime 's whip mod.

    Probably won't be transforming him back to vehicle mode for a while...

    EDIT: That was easy! Thanks again for the guide, Shmop! Decided not to go quite as curved as you did but it at least looks like a whip now!

    There are all kinds of magic involving him, ain't it? (as us Ohioans would say...)

    EDIT:

    Where's the guide for the whips?? I can't find it. I checked here and his Insta and all I saw was his last upload (according to the page) of him applying floor polish to Jolt's joints. (And no, it's not a caching error since I've never been to his Insta before. I rarely ever go on the site at all. I think once every 6 months, actually. lol)

    Studio series 38 Optimus doesn’t have a 1:1 KO. Only a 9” oversized one. Only the ROTF and BB primes have KO’s that are almost identical. Edit: mixed up the SS numbers.

    SS BB prime’s KO can be identified by his chest being diecast. That’s the easiest way to tell it’s a KO. So it’ll be cold metal if it’s the KO.
